Go to your camera's manufacturer's website and down load the driver for it that fits the operating system that you are using and this should correct your problem. Good Luck

My webcam night mode is turn off how can i turn it back on


Face Recognition Usually you'll find the webcam at the top and middle of the laptop screen. One unique feature included with the webcam on newer Toshiba laptops including the Satellite Pro, Portege and Qosmio models is facial recognition. Instead of having to type in a password when you open the laptop, you can set up the computer to recognize your face and automatically load your settings. b> Setup b> To access the face recognition feature on a Toshiba laptop, open the laptop to the registration screen and click the Face Recognition icon. Look at the circle that appears on the screen and align your face so that it fits within the circle, and then click "Next." At the next page, enter your name and password and click "OK." The next time you use the computer, click on your Face Recognition icon from the main screen and look at the webcam so it can recognize your face and load your settings. b> Night Mode b> If you're in a low-light situation you can take advantage of the webcam's Night Mode effect. To turn it on, open the Camera Assistant by clicking the Start button, and then select "All Programs."

Select the "Camera Assistant" folder and then select the "Camera Assistant" software. Once it's open, hover your mouse over the far left hand side of your laptop screen. This will cause a number of webcam icons to appear. Click the "Properties" icon, which looks like a box with a pen over the top left of the box. Click the "Night Mode" check box from the Properties window and then click "OK." b> Other Profiles b> You can also alter other effects and features of the webcam from the Camera Assistant. First open the Camera Assistant by clicking the Start button, and then select "All Programs." Select the "Camera Assistant" folder and then select the "Camera Assistant" software. Then hover your cursor on the far left of the screen until you see the webcam menu appear, and select the "Properties" icon. Then click on an individual "Profile" tab to adjust the white balance, lower or raise the brightness, or correct the colors. As you click on the adjustment, you should see the change reflected in the way the webcam is displaying on your laptop. When you've selected the settings you want, click "OK" from the Profile window.

I can not get the web cam to work


Instructions1 Take pictures independent of communications software on the Windows version of the netbook by using the webcam without connecting to networking software. Click the "Windows Start" menu and click "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" in the Programs list. The webcam application should open and the camera should produce an initial warmup image. Use the buttons on the control panel to adjust image size or take photos.
2 Use the Instant Messenger program on the Acer Linux-based laptop or netbook to work the webcam. The Acer Instant Messenger program is available in the Connect folder on the Acer laptop's desktop screen.
3 To send and receive live video and pictures using your webcam on an Acer laptop, work the webcam through individual communications software, including Skype, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, or Google Video Chat. Open your selected communications software program and click the webcam button to work your webcam.
Thanks

I upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. When it was in xp, my webcam was present in windows explorer. Now it is nowhere to be found. I found out that I can still use it through websites and chats with...


First go to device manager and see what webcam is in your laptop. Then go to the site for your brand of laptop, ie toshiba--- the support section and see if they have a download for that webcam for windows 7. Sometimes there is also software for the cam you can download too. Best place to look is on the manufacturer's support section for proper drivers and software. That might place a shortcut on your desktop again.

I have cyberlink youcam . it is already built into my laptop , but everytime i click on the youcam icon , the computer say no webcam detected . please help me ):


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa!

What type of computer do you have? A Desktop or a Laptop?

If you have a Laptop, please make sure that the webcam is enabled. Some Laptop have a feature to enable/disable the webcam (example: Lenovo [Press Fn+Esc to enable/disable the webcam]).

Try to reinstall the webcam driver using the drivers disc. If you don't have the drivers disc, you can download it from the computer / webcam manufacturer's web site (example: support.dell.com).

Try also to reinstall the cyberlink youcam software using the drivers disc or you can download it from the computer or webcam manufaturer 's website.

Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I m not able to install my integrated webcam on the dell e6400 laptop...........tried installing creative drivers but the installation stops at 90%.............I m also not able to see the webcam anywhere...


Please shut down all unnecessary tasks by going into Task Manager. Make sure there are no programs running that could interfere with the install. Particularly any graphics programs that you may use that are left open even when you close them.
Make sure your antivirus is NOT running.

I’ve dell inspiron N series 5010. My operating system is windows 7. My laptop has a built in camera. The problem is I was using MSN messenger and was showing my webcam I picked up my laptop while showing...


Many webcams have a feature that allows them to track a face. the reason they have this feature is so when a person is on a call and they want to move around some, the don't have to worry about moving the web cam. this feature will follow their face so they stay centered in the picture. I have used it in the past but found that it does not work all that well so I end up turning it off. Its very possible that if you have not moved that much or like you said picked up the laptop, you might not have realized it was even on. My software had it off by default but yours might have turned it on by default.
I think you are not experiencing any abnormal behaviour from you webcam software. if you are concerned about being spied upon then you can simply put a cover over the lens. I do this but I do it so I don't accidentally have my face on a webex without manually opening the cover.
At the end of the day I think its a good feature but it does not always work well depending on the brand of web cam.

Toshiba laptop freezes using webcam


Hi,

Do you think its due to external webcam ?

You mean that if you dont use webcame it works fine.

If this is the case you just uninstall the webcame drivers from Add/Remove Programmes under Control Panel.

Try to get the latest drivers from webcame manufacture website which suits your windows(OS) and install it again.
